Did you know Ms. Barone is working on her doctorate? Joyce Tice and family members surprised her during this morning's faculty meeting to present her with a Horace Mann Scholarship toward her PhD!
Ms. Tice said the decision was unanimous and that she hopes those of us at Piedmont appreciated Ms. Barone as much as they did at Horace Mann and CMS and you can here by the "awws" and applause in the video that we certainly do!
Congratulations, Ms. Barone. What a great surprise for our principal Teacher Appreciation Week!
Here are two clips of Ms. Tice explaining why Ms. Barone was unanimously chosen as deserving the scholarship and actually presenting the award:
Celebrating Piedmont : a blog of Happy Happenings
"Celebrating Piedmont" logs only a small fraction of the learning magic the teachers of CMS' Piedmont Middle School, an IB World School. create daily. In that sense, it is authored by all the staff and students of Piedmont. It is curated by Ms. Gurthie who can be reached at the icons above. She'll be happy to brag about Piedmont's teachers and students any chance she gets! Please note this blog has only just begun and we have so much to show off! Come back again soon!
